    Ebay a3 1.8T intercooler?

    just needing some advice on the intercooler kit for the a3 from toyosports on ebay, its Ł250 and is supposed to be a direct fit, has anybody used this kit and know if its any good? i hear the turbo revs kit for Ł200 is pretty good but doesn't fit that well so if the Ł250 0ne fits better and is good i think its worth the extra.

    The turbo revs one fits well, but you loose the fogs though, I rekon the Ł250 would loose the fogs too, youll need a custom job or forge to be able to keep the fogs.Spray the pipes black if you plan on loosing the fogs though.

    And get the cold side diverter kit for your dump valve as its much much easier to fit with one on ( as Prawn said) . And youll need a MAP sensor socket adapter.

    i don't know of the quality of the 250 one? but if it is good and fits up easy then i would probably get it but i just don't know lol whats the map sensor socket adapter? will i deff need one? did your car feel much quicker? i assume the power lasts much longer my intakes are at like 60 by 3rd when giving it some lol whats yours like?

    Should be the same I think - turbo outputs to the same place, and pipework on the S3 runs in essentially the same place. If you had to change at all, it wouldn't be much....
